In the Month of Mainstream

I'm not exactly known for my mainstream fiction, but this March Giselle Renarde Erotica is being taken over by Giselle Renarde Other Kinds of Writing.  Sounds official, eh?

March's big book releases are both suitable for a general audience.  Or maybe they're more PG.  I don't know much about rating systems, but I do know these books don't click the Adult Content box. They are not explicit titles.

And, in fact, the first release isn't even fiction.  You've probably heard me talking about it, because I've been talking about it a lot:

Like It's 1999: Diary of a Teenager in love with a Teacher launches March 14, 2014. If you pre-order now, that's when you'll get it.

True confessions of a real-life high school student on the cusp of a new millennium.

On the eve of the year 2000, high school student Giselle struggles with spirituality, ambiguous friendships, a family dealing with the aftermath of substance abuse, and deepening feelings of attraction toward her English teacher, a married man more than twice her age. Over the course of one school year, she shifts from seeing Lawrence as a father figure to falling obsessively in love.

Is Giselle making a total fool of herself, or will her teacher return her affection?  Having an affair with a student would easily cost Lawrence his career, his wife, and his kids, not to mention his sanity.  Will a by-the-books teacher sacrifice everything to indulge Giselle’s teenage crush?

LIKE IT’S 1999 is the actual, unabridged, honest-to-god diary of a teenager in love with her teacher.

Pre-order today at Kobo:
Barnes and Noble:
and Coffee Time Romance:

The other book that's coming out is called Ugly Naked People and Other Stories.  You may remember Ugly Naked People from such publishers as Untreed Reads.  It's a short story about a lesbian with an eating disorder, to be concise. 

Well, it received a good deal of praise, and now my publisher has decided they'd like to wrap it together with other short stories I've written so you can buy one convenient collection of my diverse short fiction.  And diverse it is--there are gay aging parents, lesbian family drama, a contemporary Inuit horror story, and even a reunion romance about older adults. Something everyone!

Score one for everybody's who's interested in reading non-erotic fiction (and non-fiction!). March is your month!
